Breeding sward tails
I want to start breeding sward tails.I would like to breed black(I know about the cancer if they have the black on there fins),gold,green,blue(if possible) and albino(if possible).Any help is welcome:-D
Make sure your tank is stocked with tiny hiding places and plants for the fry. The other fish might eat them. Here's a website to help : Breeding Swordtails
They should never be bred in a ten gallon, they can get up to 4+ inches and should be kept in a fifteen gallon tank or more, just pointing that out ^^
Yes, but I want to breed the colors I mentioned.
If you want specific colors, you would have to put each color in a different tank. Otherwise they will cross breed. And later keep single sex in one tank (since very young age - before they begin to spawn). Then selectively breed them in separate tanks. That way you could eventually breed out the undesired colors.
